2018 NASA Green Propulsion Technology Development RoadmapThe NASA Green Propulsion Working Group (GPWG) was tasked by the NASA Chemical Propulsion Subcapabilities Management (CPSM) with the development of this NASA Green Propulsion Technologies Development Roadmap, herein referred to as the Green Propulsion Roadmap, or simply the Roadmap, to provide guidance to NASA through the CPSM on green propulsion technology development. Other agencies or commercial partners may refer to this roadmap as well. It is envisioned that the synthesis of various Center-based activities and knowledge repositories will result in a cumulative knowledge gain, and will provide capabilities beyond the sum contribution of individual Centers. Ultimately, a well-defined roadmap of technology investment path, the enhanced coordination and alignment of activities among NASA Centers and other Federal Agencies, and a well-supported green propulsion community will facilitate the path towards the broader infusion of green propulsion technologies for science and human exploration missions, as well as a deeper understanding of the fundamental behaviors and characteristics of these systems that is on par with other historically used monopropellant propulsion systems, such as hydrazine.
